University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari stopped by the Big Blue Madness glampsite on Friday, October 2, for a ‘tent warming’ appearance to congratulate Big Blue Glamping winner and University of Kentucky senior Savannah Schlueter.

Tempur-Pedic and Sleep Outfitters hosted the first-ever #BigBlueGlamping experience at this year’s Big Blue Madness Campout. Schlueter won a luxury tent upgrade with an interior designed by Folk Magazine & Birkman Interiors and a prize package fit for the biggest UK basketball fans.

The prize package was highlighted by Coach Cal’s appearance and UK-themed gifts for Schlueter and her friends, including a tent that was decked out with two twin Tempur-Pedic “Champions Collection” mattresses, adjustable bases and pillows, and a food concierge that was available to take Schlueter’s food order and deliver it to the glampsite. Schlueter also received two single-game regular season UK basketball tickets.

Coach Cal, 2016-17 Class “Could Be Best Class Ever”

Calpresident

Andy Katz over at ESPN.com just put out an article where Coach John Calipari addresses  2016-2017 recruiting where he had this to say:

“This year’s recruiting class, where we’re in the middle of right now, could be one of our best ever,” Calipari said. “The kids that I’m seeing that we’re involved with that I feel really good about. This could be our best class ever. And that’s a pretty scary statement coming from who we’ve been able to recruit over the last 25 years.”

Kentucky is pursuing players ranked among the top 10 in the ESPN 100 for 2016 — 6-foot-10 Harry Giles (No. 1 in the ESPN 100) , 6-8 Josh Jackson (No. 3), 6-2 Dennis Smith Jr. (No.4), 6-3 Malik Monk (No. 5), 6-5 Kobi Simmons (No. 6) and 6-7 Miles Bridges (No. 7).

Jamal Murray Kentucky Crazies

John Calipari had this to say about Jamal Murray:

“I think he’ll come in and be able to score for us,” Calipari said. “You watch that game (against the USA), you’ve gotta put the ball in his hands We knew he was good, we had recruited him so we knew, we just weren’t sure he’d reclassify. … If you’re a smart kid and you can leave that year early, like Karl Towns and he ended up being the number one pick. He should’ve gone back to high school? When you’re of the right age and you have the academics you should do it. That’s what we didn’t know about Jamal.”

You can read more from Andy Katz at ESPN.com here, including what he said about Skal Labissiere and how “that other kid” was passed up by Karl Anthony-Towns last season.
